It was great to have both boys home for Easter, and to spend a slow long weekend together.
Today's little moments become tomorrow's precious memories.

My trainer got me through "leg day" at the gym. I mean, it was LEG day. Everyone hates leg day, because it is extra hard. She kept encouraging me and exclaiming how far I've come.
My legs are grateful. My body is stronger. My health is better. My stress is less.

I made a good decision to get up, out and moving when I felt anxious this morning.
This was greatly helpful to get out of my head and I'm grateful for taking action to help myself.

My partner has been immobile for about a month and I have been his caregiver. It is not an easy role for me as we tend to do things differently.
He recently thanked me for all that I have been doing. It made me grateful that I can be available to help.

My friend shared her time with me
Together we ate and talked. Shared our essence with each other. I feel intensely thankful for this beautiful connection that grows and changes as we do.

My coworker helped me get a lot accomplished today and I felt like I was in a much better place by the end of our work day.
This made my time more effective and I feel less stressed now that I know what track I am on.

Ocean Park, WA, USA: Grateful for a day of peace and no threats to physical existence. It has not been so for many over the course of history, or even for this current age in other parts of the world.
This is a profound privilege not to be taken for granted.

I went swimming today, and was able to ride my bike to and from the pool.
It reaffirmed that the best way to appreciate the place you live is by moving through it relatively slowly.

My willingness to face my shadow at different points in my life.
I realized that no matter how difficult it can be, it is the only way to reconnect to the light of life inside of me and everyone else.

I went for a little bike ride on this beautiful spring day and stopped at a bench with a view on the snow-capped mountains and lake. I reflected on a question that was gifted to me yesterday and wrote it down, sketchnote style.
It reminded how precious slowing down and just being is, how beautiful it is to be alive, how lucky I am to have the privilege to take time for these things and appreciate nature and how lucky I am to have been able to take the sketchnote course and to get this particular questions to reflect on.

I was great to find the time for embroidery -I used to love it, but then life got too busy for it. I enjoyed having rediscovered it again in lockdown.
Every cloud has a silver lining.

It reminded me of how great my workplace is especially the Social Club who do a great deal of work to keep everyone engaged and happy.

My friend's cat came and sat for a very long time on my lap as I was curled up reading.
It made me feel safe by knowing that I am a comfortable space for a creature to relax and it's warmth eased my cramps, which I think it instinctively knew. I felt grateful it was helping me and sharing love.

Seeing the almost full moon shining brightly.
This a beautiful sight that reminds me of the magnitude of the universe, it made me think of how everything is in a constant state of change and how soon daylight savings will be upon us. These are positive things that remind me to work with, not against cycles.

Someone has 'fed' a wooden crocodile who sits next to my morning walking route. It made me smile!
You might be surprised how a simple smile can soothe the soul.
